The foundation is named for Sylvia Ann Thornton, who has been living with Down syndrome since her birth in 1953. Read Sylvia’s story.
SAT Foundation was established to assist families choosing to keep their loved ones in a home health environment, but who might be facing challenges like aging caregivers and gaps in funding for services. The SAT Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that will provide supplemental services where limitations in existing programs exist. Those services will include informational resources; support for home modifications; and support for outside activities based on established guidelines and needs assessments.
Families may apply for these supplemental services through the foundation beginning July 15, 2015. Applications will be processed and decisions made in the final quarter of 2015. The foundation will examine each request on a case-by-case basis. Funds will be released to the service provider. Go to Apply for criteria, guidelines and forms. The SAT Foundation is a charitable public organization. Give now so more can be served.
